Bad press from people with only bad experiences. You never see the praise, do you? Mine has been outstanding. I will do about 50/50 between auto and select shift.
Jumping gears 3 times. Any auto will "jump" gears to grab the most power when you demand it. Auto will really only "jump" down 2 gears. With the select shift I can pop it down one more if really need be.
That video you saw, must have be driven by a granny. It will purr around 1000rpm if you p
y foot it all day! Which does save gas hah!
